wanted to echo what steve hill said. i may not be as eloquent but i too was pretty taken aback at some of the comments of the supervisors in particular, you know, supervisor from district 4. you know, i was really taken aback at how vicious, how mean spirited some of her comments were, berating some of the people in public comment. >> president chiu: if i could -- >> we don't work for you. remember that. >> president chiu: if i could mention that all comments during public comment should be directed to the full board. thank you. next speaker. are there any other members of the public that wish to speak in general public comment? general public comment is ended. madam clerk, is there in he more business in front of the body? >> clerk calvillo: that concludes our business for today, mr. president. >> president chiu: ladies and gentlemen our special meeting for today is now adjourned. here to introduce the mayor of san francisco, forecast sf sponsor and regional vice president health system innovation and community benefit for california pacific medical center, please welcome judy lee. j
san francisco county transportation authority, steve asked me to recap highlights from the transportation investment strategy, approved this past may by mpc and abag. a little background on what the regional competition planning processes.something going on since sb 375 was passed, updated every four years about those regions long response petition activities they do revenue forecast.this update, 277 billion. and then they speak about how this funding should be prioritized. 91 billion is considered discretionary to the region. the rpp is quite important for two reasons. it is a sort of gatekeeperi to federal and state funds for transportation projects in san francisco might need to access. you have to be in the rtp in order to get a federal action on your project. it is also the regions policy statement about transportation. indicates where we are headed in this region. with adding context i want to recap maybe four of the highlights from the transportation investment strategy, moving towards adoption in the rtp next year. we have quite a bit to be proud of and happy
point i was happy to hear steve talking about the emphasis now, and the pressure on many employers who not have much of their population, or their workforce residing in san francisco and i think that is something that we can use to our advantage and talk to these businesses that have campuses outside of san francisco, up to 50 percent or above 50 percent of employees living in san francisco. what can we do to attract you here? or part of your operational headquarters, whatever is appropriate to san francisco, find out if they need a higher percentage of multi-bedroom homes, better schools, parks, intracity transportation, it directs us do what we need to do. it was instructive because i think it was some architect i was talking withand he was astounded that apple is building a new campus in a suburban setting, away from transportation. it made sense of the campus was already there, but to build a whole new campus in an area that will be hard for people to get to seem to be a strange development. that is something we can use to our advantage in the future. >> thank you very much. >> th
there in 2004, and i remember in 2006 when mr. steve webber came before the commission making very, very similar promises. and i can tell you that in fall of 2008, my life at home was nothing short of a living hell. i mean, there was base, constant base thursday, friday, saturday night every single week and i'm just trying to live my life like any other resident in san francisco. and there was nothing i could do to stop this. the police couldn't do anything. it went on and on. until finally the restaurant closed. and if this is going to be granted again, i would ask that the commission consider conditions be placed on this. conditions should be placed on the permit that prevent loud music going until the night, 1:00 a.m. i'm just asking for something reasonable here, a reasonable compromise. because i don't want to be in a situation that i was in before. and i don't think my neighbors do either. >> okay. that is understandable. sounds like it's a whole different sound system, a whole different type of music presentation. >> there is no base. it's a piano and it's me. that is it. that is what i
is here at time and a half. [ laughter ] >> good evening commissioner staff, steve mathias from mission statement. i will run down the incidents running in the central district. august 26th at 1:30 a victim said she was choked by a bouncer at club atmosphere. the victim said that -- he was handcuffed and escorted out by security and then released. so we're still looking into that. an illegal unpermitted party occurred september 9th at 3:45 a.m. police responded on report of an assault and reports of a gun. fire was called out. 200-250 people when they finally opened the door came out. i have gone to the manager who owns the building and we talked about that as far as the permit process and they said that would not happen again. september 22nd a victim had her purse stolen, total loss was about $600. september 23rd at club atmosphere, a fight broke out between patrons. there were at least three separate fights going on at this time. the fights spilled out into the alley and police were forced to deploy pepper-spray on the combatants. two brothers were arrested for being drunk in public
? you know, some of the politics in the city it's hard to enjoy but i will say honestly to steve fox, to the chamber and judy and all of you working together to keep our city successful, i do enjoy creating jobs. and when you see our youth get those paid internships or get that summer job at a number of all of your or starbucks, even, or the jamba juice and all the others and the nonprofits as well as our city departments and you see the gleam in their eye that they can really be part of this community in san francisco, that's something i really do enjoy and i will continue enjoying that for this whole 4 years term, even though i will avoid all the politics as much as i can. but i want to begin by saying that since i started, as judy mentioned earlier, san francisco businesses have created 22,500 jobs as my start, including 13,000 new jobs in technology and industry alone. unemployment dropped from 9.6 when i started to 7.4 percent, third lowest in the state, and i said in other jurisdictions, i'll say it again, i think we contribute to marin and san mateo because we buy all the wi

or san francisco. we have been -- i have been working sfmta over ten years. steve bell, your real estate contract manager, we looked at stuff in south city, 245 south spruce, which the airport had a long-term lease for the expansion that didn't occur. we had to relocation from the city. dbi beverages, golden brands to some who know, to 175,000 people we couldn't find anything in san francisco that. is one of the constrictive things. the accusation by sales force is skewed. everybody looks at that and tries to comp the amount of money per square foot they paid is off the charts. i don't think it is reproducable. in daly city one of the reasons we were able to do this is that the huge development in visitacion valley, which was a redevelopment project, which is now off the table for now, i think one of the reasons we were able to acquire the leasehold there and not have any flak from daly city, planning department and supervisors in daly city is that is a dead piece of land, 20 acres that would take 10, 20 years to develop. fit was in development i think it would have been much more diffi
